Netflix kicks off hit series "The Crown": It has something to do with Harry and Meghan

The successful Netflix series has offered viewers an exciting and dramatic glimpse into the life of the British royal family for nearly half a decade. It depicts the royals over several generations in personal and political matters.

Much to the delight of fans, Netflix announced the expansion of “The Crown” for the fifth and sixth seasons last summer. Unfortunately, the streaming service also confirmed that season six will be the last.

Series writer and producer Peter Morgan (58) described season six as the production team’s “original plan”.

Susan Mackie, 35, one of the show’s executive producers, gave an interview with the now British news agency Broadcasting Information on Peter Morgan’s reasons for ending the series after season six.

“Peter made it very clear that he can’t write anything if he doesn’t have the time to get the proper perspective,” explains the producer.

The series will end with the events taking place in the early 2000s.

Which means: the series creators also avoid Harry’s earlier wild party life and megaxit.

“I think she (Peter Morgan, D.Red.) It seems like ten years is the minimum time he can look at something in a historical context to really understand it,” Mackie says.

And she adds: “I don’t think he will be distracted by that.”

Fortunately, it will be some time before the end of the series. Season five is scheduled to run on Netflix in the spring of 2022.
